Subject: It worked?
While artists weren't necessarily involved, our politicians have certainly gone through dissolution. Creepy broadcast, great multi-media project - creative and thought provoking. Almost Orwellian. Need to understand the "Secretary" is an artist - not a gov't guy.

Subject: Does sound odd
Don't know what he actually means,

can't really make it out but I would say that I think the artist,

should be free of the gov't.

duno though many artists sustain their livelyhood from the donations of society.

dissolution--From Latin dissolutio (“a dissolving, destroying, breaking up, dissolution”)

from:

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/dissolution


I have to say that I thought the role of the artist was to bring reality to the fore.

Subject: creeped out just a bit....
I don't want government to join with the artist(s) in a "dissolution of reality." That sounds alarming, making artists propaganda technicians serving the state's agenda, invested in battling against the so-called reality-based community."

Whether a democrat or a republican is president, that sounds like a bad idea.
